Mohit Dubey , May 24, 2015
His 57-day political sabbatical in unknown land may have made him the butt of many a joke, but for the faithful in Amethi, Rahul Gandhi is a changed man - more accessible and more focused.

FnF Correspondent , May 03, 2015
CPI(M) says it is ready to forge a front with Congress in Parliament on issues like land bill and secularism but ruled out being part of a national front or alliances outside because "they are not credible".

Why the Communists remain a peripheral force in India
Amulya Ganguli , May 16, 2015

Has Rahul Gandhi shot himself in the foot?
Amulya Ganguli , Apr 18, 2015

Kejriwal chose Perfect Victory over Perfect Party
MR Narayan Swamy , Mar 31, 2015
From the happenings of recent weeks, it will be tempting to deduce that Arvind Kejriwal is a Stalinist who, like all autocrats, hates democracy and dissension and loves yes-men. That's what Prashant Bhushan will want us to believe. But the stormy story of the Aam Aadmi Party's internal crisis is far more complicated than such a black-and-white narrative. ....
Sonia Gandhi in charge but her alliance is shaky
Amulya Ganguli , Mar 28, 2015
If Rahul Gandhi is in retreat in a Buddhist monastery in Myanmar, as rumours have it, then he can be said to be imitating, in part, the Sakya prince who left home and hearth 2,500 years ago to find out the meaning of life. In the Congress' heir-apparent's case, however, his quest is seemingly for finding his own rightful place in the 130-year-old party. ....
'Dirty politics' in AAP ?
Amulya Ganguli , Mar 07, 2015
For the Aam Admi Party (AAP) to begin falling apart less than a month after its famous victory in the Delhi election will be a cause of surprise and disappointment to its legions of followers in the national capital and outside.

Ajaz Ashraf , Mar 02, 2015
The quirky politics of Rahul Gandhi, most recently symbolised by his absence from the Budget session of Parliament, reveals a mindset remarkably similar to that of Muhammad bin Tughlaq.

Fugitive prince: Is there a rift between Sonia and Rahul?
Amulya Ganguli , Feb 28, 2015

PM Modi's secular pitch can give BJP a new face
Amulya Ganguli , Feb 21, 2015
The saffron brotherhood is apparently coming to terms with India's pluralism - and the constitution. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi's observation that his government will act against any religious group inciting violence shows he has realized, albeit belatedly, that he cannot afford to maintain his "dangerous silence", to quote the New York Times, on the intimidation of minorities by Hindu groups affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). ....
